'Puthiya Mukham' to go Bollywood
After a string of successes from remakes of Mollywood films in other Indian languages, the demand for remake rights of Malayalam movies are increasing many folds.
Recently the remake rights of Siddique's 'Bodyguard', was sold for high prices for Tamil, Hindi and Telugu. Another Malayalam movie that has generated huge interest from other language producers is the Prithviraj starer ‘Puthiya Mukham’, which was one of the biggest hits of last year.
Bollywood super star Ajay Devgan who loved the storyline of the movie produced by Bathestha productions, has planned for an immediate remake of the movie in Hindi. The exact amount paid for the remake rights is kept a secret, but the sources close to the producers Anil Mathew and Murugan states that the movie has fetched a very good price.
Presently Bathestha team is busy shooting ‘Nallavan’ with Jayasuriya and debutante director Aji John at Ottappalam. The new movie which also features Saikumar, Siddhique and Mydhili is expected to be a path breaker like their previous endeavour ‘Puthiya Mukham’.
